, quote, glossy campaign video for mr. romney that described him as charismatic and authentic. and is it normal for people at a noncampaign storm relief event to carry t-shirts that attack the president? but this event turned awkward, too. governor romney's warning to slash fema so today he refused to answer questions about it. >> reporter: would you eliminate fema if you were president? would you eliminate fema if you were president? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> that didn't work, so reporters went outside and asked him again. >> reporter: governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> reporter: governor, you haven't said what you would do with fema. why won't you answer any questions on it. >> no response. he has no answers. maybe that's why the guy who gave the keynote address at this convention is praising his opponent. >> the president has been great. the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> appreciating the president's leadership in this crisis is obviously nonpartisan
their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in
with mitt romney in the days to come. >> we hear that perhaps mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i have devastation on the shore, floods in the northern part of my state. if you think i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> this storm is a wakeup call to those conservatives who want to leave disaster relief up to the states. turn it over to them. to those who want to privatize everything. the state of new jersey is overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources. the state's resources aren't enough to help those without power, to help those flooded out of their home. you need a total effort across the country in a crisis like this. that's why there is a federal government. federal and local governments working together is the successful formula for the state of new jersey. it's going to take time. but to turn it over to the states and say you're
. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign doesn't exactly know what it will be doing for the next 24 to 48 hours. >> bret: still question mar marks. >> very much so. >> bret: still ahead, more inconsistencies between what the obama administration knew and what it said about the libya terror attack. first, karl rove and joe trippi on who is ahead in the presidential voting and what really matters, the electoral college map. we do it every week. coming up. as we head to break, cape may, new jersey, look in darkness there at the rin and the wind. keep it here. i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they'r
are contorsoinists. >> governor romney is down by five points in ohio, according to the latest polls. for mr. romney, desperate times call for desperate measures and it doesn't matter how much the truth suffers. joining me now is pulitzer prize connie schultz. she writes today, why romly will lose ohio. hint, hint. and dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." he's writing that romney goes off road with the truth. thanks for being here tonight. connie, let me start with you. you were born and raised in ohio with ties to the auto industry. >> yes. >> how are ohioans responding to this false attack by romney and ryan? >> that's what is interesting to me. i come from these people. i come from utility workers and auto plant workers and steel workers. i think romney thinks that the people that i come from are stupid. but i've been traveling all over the state. i was in three different towns today and i've been at a lot of packed halls with auto workers and people who supply the auto industry. you're talking about 800,000 jobs in auto-related jobs in ohio, which means you're talking about more th
's lived his life. >> more from mrs. romney at the bottom of the hour here on cnn the in the meantime the first lady, michelle obama, spoke with our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. she says her husband, the president, is dedicated to helping all americans. >> what i can tell you about my husband is that he's been working to ensure that every american can have a real shot at the american dream. you know. that people can have a job that pays a decent wage. that people don't lose their homes because someone gets sick. you know, that you can send your kids to college maybe or maybe your kids can learn a trade and get a good job that pays benefits and that folks can retire with a little dignity and security. >> earlier this week the first lady spoke in florida preaching her husband's message in a vital swing state. >> we believe in an america where all of us, where we understand that none of us gets where we are on our own. that we all have a community of people lifting us up. where we treat everyone, everyone with dignity and respect. from the teachers who inspire us to th
to mr. romney. well, a gm spokesman responded to this saying, that is absolutely bereft of any fundamental understanding of the global automotive industry. all global manufacturers, whether general motors, ford, chrysler, or vw, build historically in the markets in which we sell. steve rattner, last, just to nail this down, it seems to me, the reality is, beyond all the nonsense and the ads put out by romney to get votes, is that we build jeeps in this country for people to buy them in this country, as i have done, and we build jeeps in china for chinese people to buy, and that's the way it's been, it's the way it will be, according to all future plans. >> yes. and i think both you and bill and what you have just read from the gm spokesman has made that very clear. cars are being made close to people who buy them. now, we do export jeeps at the moment, because it is such an iconic brand worldwide. and jeep wranglers will only be made in toledo for the foreseeable future. and any jeep wranglers that are bought around the world, and as i said, it is an iconic brand, will be expor
. what a dumb move to have taken given what's happened here. >>> mitt romney's halloween mask. mr. bipartisan. do you believe it? trick-or-treat. i don't think it's going to work with anybody. anyway. or this is just another etch-a-sketch moment? >>> and joe walsh, remember that guy? he may be the one republican member of congress most democrats want to see defeated. >>> let me finish with the metamorphosis of mitt romney from, well, caterpillar to butterfly? that is "hardball," the place for politics. [ male announcer ]e emergency workers everywhere trust duracell...?? duralock power preserve. locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. now...guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. >>> we showed you the averages of the polls from battleground states. let's take a look at some individual numbers. in wisconsin our new nbc news/"wall street journal"/maris poll shows obama with a three-point lead. in new hampshire our poll has the president two points ahead. in iowa our poll has president obama up by six, 50%, 44%. in colorado a new cnn/opinion research poll shows t
, and mitt romney would bring the kind of leadership i believe that would stay on top of something like this. >> let's turn if we may, mr. mayor, to the situation in new york. obviously we'll come to the storm in a moment. right off the top, your view really of what's happened with the new york marathon, you i think were in agreement with the mayor as indeed i was for quite awhile that it should go ahead, it would be a morale boosting exercise, it would rally perhaps new yorkers a way that many events after 9/11 did. i came round before the decision today to thinking actually, i don't think it's a good idea and i did that because i saw what happened in staten island and the fury and the reaction and i changed my opinion. did you change your opinion when you saw that overnight and this morning, or were you still of the view you know what, we should get on with it? >> i was in staten island this morning, actually. i started the day in staten island, because people there feel very abandoned, they feel very alone and we were trying to raise money to try to help people so it will directly go to p
rudy giuliani hitting the campaign trail for governor romney in ohio today. he joins us from cincinnati. nice to see you, mr. mayor. >> nice to see you, greta, how are you? >> very well. before we get to your statements just a second ago and looks like you are not taking any prisoners on that. you were at a rally tonight for the governor. i'm curious who else was there and how many people. did you you get a look at the crowd? >> 30 to 35,000. there for three, three and a half hours in kind of cold weather. didn't bother them at all. just about every republican you can think of was here. john mccain. john kasich the governor, senator portman, senator graham. republicans from all over the country. they are all going to leave here and fan out over the country in support of mitt romney. i will be in wisconsin tomorrow. florida the next day. maybe pennsylvania. they are going to probably decide that as we move along. but the idea was all of the supporters here tonight supporting mitt romney and paul ryan and starting tomorrow morning they will all be in the different parts of the country pro
to be the face of the romney campaign when it comes to these issues. >> and of course, the candidate himself has yet to make any kind of comment that he thinks that maybe mr. sununu may have been over the line. he continues to support him. does not command any kind of clarification he put out was anything but an apology. what does this say about his leadership? >> it says that he's ill equipped to deal with issues that are uncomfortable. he has no social responsibility when it comes to arguing with his own representatives about how they should appropriately represent him. or suggest that he is implicitly in agreement with the vicious attitudes of mr. sununu. that would be quite dangerous and striking and fundamentally that would be an extension of the believes of a campaign that's not been very sensitive around the issues of race. when you couple that insensitivity with the effect of these remarks, all you can conclude is that this is what the man believes and he allows his attack dog to go out and say things he can't directly say. >> professor, we just had lawrence wilkerson on, former chief of
